Social Security Administration website to apply.

Simply answer the questions in order. Always click “next” at the bottom of each page. At the end, there’s a virtual signature. It’s just a box to check. Keep clicking “next”. You will be asked is you already have a “My Social Security Account” set up. If you do not, go down and click to create a Login.gov sign in. It routes you to a new page, and again towards the bottom, click to create a new account.

  • Sign up for Medicare Part B ONLY if you don’t want your monthly benefit to begin.
  • When asked the question do you currently have a group insurance plan, mark “NO”.  It looks to determine if you will have the group insurance while also having Medicare.

Let us know how this goes and if you were successful in applying.  If it is a bit too confusing.  Let’s set up a brief phone appointment and we’ll walk you through to get everything moving along.
